Hi everyone,

I just wanted to announce that my historical romance novel, Falsely Accused, has just been released by my publisher, Books We Love.

On board the convict ship taking them to the penal colony of Australia, Maryanne Watson and Jake Smith meet and fall in love, but Jake hides a terrible secret that will take him to the gallows if it ever comes out.

On arrival in Sydney the lovers are separated. Maryanne is sent to work for the lecherous Captain Fitzhugh. After he attacks her she flees into the wilderness and eventually meets up with Jake who has escaped from a chain gang.  They set up home in a hidden valley and Maryanne falls pregnant.  Will Jake come out of hiding to protect his fledgling family? And how can love triumph over such crushing odds?




My Favorite Author

Cheryl WrightWe all have our favorite authors, I’m sure. Mine is B.J. Daniels, who writes romantic suspense.

I have bought all her books that I’ve been able to find, and my friends pass their copies onto me when I haven’t been able to purchase her books.

For some weird reason, we have issues buying her books here in Australia. When that happens, I resort to whatever means I have to in order to get hold of her books.

The majority of my friends see a book in the shops, check out the cover, the blurb, and then read the first page. I’m sure that’s how most people choose the books they buy.

For me, it’s a little different. When I see a B.J. Daniels book, I buy it. It’s really that simple!

In fact, I once bought the same book three times! That was a little embarrassing. The friends I gave those extra copies to were pretty happy, I should add.

I’d love to hear about your favorite author/s, and how you choose the books you buy. Over to you….

In 1860’s Australia, if a poor man could not afford to buy kerosene for his lamp, he had to use a slush lamp. Slush lamps were made by half filling a container with clay, then topping it up with mutton fat. A piece of worsted material wrapped around a stick formed a wick.  These lamps threw out some light, but they were smelly and smoky, and only used as a last resort.

Margaret Tanner writes well researched historical romances set in early Australia.
